    Try to put a rubberband on the end of the screw driver. It will help it stay in place.

    If that doesn't work you can try to CAREFULLY cut a new grove in the head of the screw with a dremmel.

    Are you able to grip the head with needlenose vice grips/pliers? If you can you can try to take it out by gripping it hard and unscrewing.

    If you have a very steady hand and are very careful you can try to go to the extreme and drill the screw out. Just go very slowly and be careful.

    If I have any other ideas I will post them

    When i was fixing my ipod mini i drilled out the screw. you can try this but be VERY VERY VERY VERY careful. you can seriously mess up your ipod doing that

    put a drop of super glue on the screw then put the screwdriver on top so the glue becomes that shape
